Federico Viñas has gone from strength to weakness with Club América since his arrival for the 2019 Apertura. The Uruguayan arrived from Juventud, a club in his country of origin, where he had very good performances at an early age, a situation that caught the attention of the Azulcremas and caused them to obtain him on loan in the first instance, until making the purchase a year later.

The player had very good performances in his first three tournaments, however, as of the Clausura 2021, Viñas was relegated for two reasons.

In the first leg against Puebla in the quarterfinals of the Clausura 2022, the Uruguayan was injured after a collision with Gularte, defender of La Franja, and goalkeeper Antony Silva, which caused him to be substituted in the 20th minute of the match.
